dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present publication is to give a complete list of the mineral species so far known to occur in Norway. Only well defined species have been listed: Therefore a number of mineral names referring to more or less doubtful species have been omitted. Generally speaking the Norwegian mineral occurences are of more or less deep- seated types. A Norwegian copper ore vein, for instance, usually exhibits the deep zone of primary sulphides only. As the variety of deep-seated minerals is rather limited, the number of species found in Norway is comparatively small fraction of the total number known, namely about 18% (about 310 out of about 1770). The mineral species originally described from Norway, each with the original locality and the first description added, are listed on pp. 8-10 followed by a list of some Norwegian variety names. The main list of Norwegian minerals has been arranged in accordance with the mineralogical tables by H. Strunz (Mineralogische Tabellen, Leipzig 1941), so that a comparison with these tables will show at a glance the species wich have not been found in Norway. Only in the cases of where Norwegian minerals effort has been made to state all known localities.
